Region 'Red Burgundy' - Year 1992

Rating Drinkability Style
starstarstarstarstar drink soon A large vintage of relatively light if not unpleasant wines; majority have little tannic backbone or extract

Weather Conditions

After a warm May, June was very wet, and flowering was protracted. But the summer was fine, except for rain in late August, and fine weather resumed in September. The harvest began on 12 September on the Côte de Beaune, on 18 September on Côte de Nuits. Storms interrupted picking on 22 September. Yields were too high, but the grapes were healthy even if acidity levels were low. Overall the wines are supple, have charm without great vigour, and little tannic backbone or extract. They need to be drunk within their first ten years.

Best Appellations

The Côte de Beaune was marginally better than the Côte de Nuits.
